Update: It’s been a few days since we have been serving, and we could still use your help. Click here for more information.


As the governor declares Bastrop County in a state of disaster, the Mission U-Too team is setting up to serve in one of their very own communities. This is our home and these are our neighbors, and we can’t think of any place we’d rather be serving right now, especially because this isn’t the first time we have done this right here in Bastrop County.

Right now we are setting up at the northeast corner of the Smithville Recreation Center serving food to first responders. Our plan is to be out here as long as we are needed, serving food and lending a listening ear to anyone who needs it. But in order to serve well, we need your help!

Here are some ways you can help serve first responders, evacuees, and victims of the 2015 Bastrop County fire.

Donations – We need your financial support to cover costs of food and other expenses for our team while we serve. Since we plan to be here into next week we definitely could use your support. Click here to make a donation today.

Volunteer – Not only do we need your financial support, we need people to help serve. We are looking for people to help cook food and volunteers to deliver the food to those who need it, especially those with larger vehicles like SUVs or vans. Either just show up at the Smithville Recreation Center located at 106 Royston St, Smithville, TX 78957 or contact Jason Bray at 214.236.4446 or Jonah Beyer at 512.988.8365 if you have any questions about volunteering.

Prayer – Pray, pray, pray…we need you to pray for the firefighters and other first responders for their safety as they battle the fire, that there is minimum damage to homes and businesses, as well as for the families either evacuated or victims of the fire. Also pray for Mission U-Too and the leadership that God would use us to share His love.

Thank you for sharing and for your support through donations, volunteering, and prayer, we appreciate all of you who support what God is doing through Mission U-Too!

At Mission U-Too our mission is simply to feed people both physically and spiritually. Christ called us to meet our neighbor’s physical needs by providing a meal for them each week. Even more, He called us to share the message of Christ.

The burger is just the method, but the real change happens when people experience the love of Christ.

Meet Dwight

“My name is Dwight. I was born and raised in Bastrop County. Both of my parents are deceased and I am under the caregiver of my Aunt. I have a learning disorder, but find comfort in Jesus Christ. When I started to come to Mission U-Too I was shy and only spoke to those I knew. I started to come every Monday to the Bastrop location and found purpose in my life. I love to make friendships and laugh. I’ve never met a stranger in my life and now I serve at the Smithville location every Thursday night. I feel loved by those I serve, and those who I serve with. In fact, everyone is “my buddy.” I like to pray during prayer time after serving in Smithville, and will one day like to lead one of the bible study messages.”


feedtheneed-final2014-tiltWith your help, Mission U-Too will continue to feed the need and provide a safe place where people can receive a hot meal each week and be accepted as they are. Even further, your gift of $25, $50, or $100 will impact more lives with the gospel.

Thank you for giving today, and making a difference in the lives of people like Dwight!

A new day has come and gone, and tomorrow is quickly approaching. Sooner than you know it, it will be Thursday. Thursday for Mission U-Too means serving in Smithville and/or Lockhart. But we have some changes that are taking place in Smithville that I want you to be a part of!

Mission U-TooI have some exciting news! God is moving and making changes in Smithville’s location. Mission U-Too Smithville will be serving at The Neighborhood Place from 5:00-6:00 every Thursday!

When change happens goodness comes out of it. Smithville is growing in the people we serve and how many volunteers are serving. When we are constantly in prayer, it’s in God’s will and perfect timing, He will show up and show out! It’s been an adventure watching Mission U-Too Smithville volunteers reach so many lives.

Mission U-Too SmithvilleWe are excited about our new location, our volunteers, the Smithville community, and those we serve. Come be a part of it and watch God do miracles, healing, change lives, restore hearts and salvation take place. BAM! Now that’s the gospel!
